Born to be a wine, Brunello has become a legend. It was created by some winemakers of Montalcino, in the heart of Tuscany, toward the end of the 19th century. They were looking for a red wine of exceptional quality and a long ageing period to accompany wild game, roasted meats, red meat and aged cheeses. And they obtained a wine which was destined to enter into the enological hall of fame, overflowing the chalice of Bacchus with joy. In the last decades, Brunello di Montalcino has undergone a general evolution in quality, and has made a name for itself throughout the world. In fact, Brunello di Montalcino was the first Italian wine to obtain the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (D.O.C.G.) designation. It is exclusively produced, aged and bottled within the confines of the town of Montalcino in the province of Siena, using grapes from the Sangiovese species, locally called Brunello.

Ruby red colour with slight garnet hues resulting from ageing; intense and persistent perfume, with notes of red fruits jam; a smooth, velvety flavour with evenly balanced tannins, intense and persistent with spice notes and a hint of liquorice; harmonious and elegant on the whole.


"Coffee and chocolate aromas signal this exotic and fragrant red. The cherry and plum notes are almost afterthoughts, while spice, leather and tobacco flavors come to the fore, with vivid acidity through the lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 3,300 cases made. –BS" -Rated 94, Wine Spectator

"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a dark garnet color and pretty layers of dried cherry, blackberry, delicate spice, leather and tobacco. There's a soft side to this young Brunello that has been finessed by the oak to render an almost-immediate approach. It looks ready to drink in three years or so, and may require less aging time than many of its peers in this vintage. The wine closes strong with bright acidity and very attractive notes of dark fruit and spice. Some Brunellos call out for a juicy cut of succulent red meat by their side, and this is one of those wines. " -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"by Kerin O’Keefe Warm, toasty aromas of leather, savory herb, hay, fennel, menthol, forest floor and dark berry come together in the glass. The vibrant palate offers layers of red cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and grilled herb. It’s well balanced, with tightly knit but polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2020–2030. — (5/1/2015) — 94" -Rated 94, Wine Enthusiast
